Bug Description

When Setting byobu to autostoart via the F9 menu symlinks for .bashrc and .profile I use to keep all my systems synced are overwritten with normal files.

Byobu should follow symlinks whenever writing config files as this would be the desired and expected behaviour.

Tested with byobu 5.16 and tmux 1.5
